Last night I attended the rival to the Black and White Ball - the Blue and Green Champagne Party, which was at a fabulous venue, The Collection, on the Brompton Road.
Tickets for the Black and White Ball were £275, and out of the price range of many party members, particularly CFers. Unfortunately, unlike last year there were no discounted after dinner tickets within a price range, so we were glad to hear that Tobias Ellwood and Mary McLeod were putting on a party for a mere £35 with all the profits raised going to social action projects around the country.
There was a great turnout for the event, with a number of MPs, including Angela Watkinson, Tobias Ellwood, and Robert Goodwill attending. The CF Exec was out in force with James Dinsdale, Mark Clarke, Matt Richardson and Karen Allen attending.
I am sure there were some rather sore heads this morning!
